  • Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund 2016/17

    Created: 14/11/2016

    The Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund is now accepting applications for small, one-off awards of £300.

    Local charities, community groups, schools and individuals from across the UK and Ireland are invited to apply for an award to help support sporting or leisure activities or hobbies that are beneficial to individuals or communities.

    To date, the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund has given out awards to help over 150,000 people. This winter, five separate awards of £300 will be given out each week from 07 November 2016 until 26 February 2017. One of these awards will go to the project that has received the most public votes online each week, while the other four will be selected by a panel of judges who will judge each entry on:

    • The extent to which the proposed initiative will help the local community;
    • Extent of the proposed initiative’s reach; and
    • The perceived local need for such hobbies, sporting or leisure activities.

    Entries can be made at any time up until 11.59pm on Sunday 26 February 2017.
